رمضان ۱۴۴۱ ڈائری : رمضان المبارک کا پہلا جمعہ

اسلام علیکم رمضان مبارک۔ اللہ ہمیں اس مبارک مہینے کی برکات سے مستفید ہونے کی توفیق عطا فرمائے اور ہمیں ڈھیر ساری عبادت کرنا نصیب فرمائے۔ آمین۔ رمضان کا چاند نظر آگیا لیکن تراویح لوگ اپنے اپنے گھروں میں پڑھیں گے۔ خواتین تو یوں بھی گھر میں ہی تراویح ادا کرتی ہیں لیکن مرد حضرات…

I first saw him on Rajeev Masand’s interview. He is so cute! And, then, I searched for him on YouTube and binged on all the videos on his channel. The guy is funny and cute and his jokes not only make you laugh, but also make you think. What I like the best is that…

Fun Facts About Me #14

I don’t love my writing. I like it, but the final product that I publish isn’t perfect. If I try to refine it, I will keep working on the same story forever. P.S. I start at least one new draft with a new idea every day.

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w41

I did not write about my previous week. It wasn’t much different. Nor is this week. I didn’t sleep much (what else is new?), had a lot of work to do in office and the interviews are still going on. The only thing that relieves my stress is YouTube. I have watched Pakistani dramas and…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w39

I did not post this yesterday, because my work week is still continuing. That’s right. I am at office today, taking interviews. I don’t understand why the interviews are scheduled for the weekend. It takes away from my precious me time. I get to catch on my sleep over the weekend and that is also…

5 Reasons to watch Alif Drama (Geo TV)

I am looking forward to watching Alif Drama (Geo TV). It is written by Umera Ahmed. The novel is already published in April 2019 and is immensely popular amongst Urdu readers.

I have my custom domain now, hurrah!

Good morning! I have an important announcement to make, peeps. I just opted for the business plan on wordpress.

For branding, if I may call it…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w38

This week was so hectic. There is work coming my from all directions – some of it should be assigned to others, but how often do I escalate this matter? To make things worse, I fell sick. As in, I didn’t sleep much for three days and my left eye is always twitching and burning….

Fun Facts About Me #8

I completed my secondary and higher secondary education in Urdu medium schools. English is my father tongue. Some readers do notice that I am not well-versed in the technicalities of writing and nuances of the grammar. My vocabulary is limited. I don’t like purple prose, not even reading it. My mantra is to keep it…

A Retrospective: The week that was – 19w37

Has anyone participated in P2P2019? I am hoping to, but I don’t have much time, despite sleeping lesser than usual. Weather is flutuating like anything and it adds to the irritation. Work was hectic, but TGIF. How was your week? Edited: WordPress just informed me that this is my 500th post. :O Shabana Mukhtar
